DSP Group to Use CEVA Chips in Its Voice Processors

DSP Group, a provider of wireless chipset solutions for converged communications, will use Ceva's audio/voice/sensing digital signal processing technology in its DBMD4 next-generation, ultra-low-power, always-on voice and audio processor.

The CEVA-powered DBMD4 allows battery-operated devices to actively listen and sense voice activity and commands while in ultra-low power mode, extending battery life.

"Voice and audio are playing an increasingly important role in how we interact with our personal devices in a more intelligent way," said Ofer Elyakim, CEO of DSP Group, in a statement. "CEVA's audio/voice/sensing DSP is at the foundation of our DBMD4 Always On Voice processor, delivering the desired power and processing efficiency  to drive the industry's lowest power 'always-on' solution, in addition to the performance required to handle advanced noise cancellation algorithms."

"We are pleased to extend our partnership with DSP Group as they enhance their always-on voice activation product line with new features and even better performance," said Eran Briman, vice president of marketing at CEVA, in a statement. "DBMD4 offers a compelling solution for any wearable, mobile or consumer device looking to add a voice-enabled interface that is highly accurate even in high noise environments."
